New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery

On July 1, 1997, the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery was established, funded jointly by the state and federal governments.  It was established on 104 acres of land previously used as a state forest in the town of Boscawen, located minutes north of Concord.

The New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery became the first state cemetery east of the Mississippi River to allow interment of non-resident veterans.  The State of New Hampshire is proud and honored to provide this dignified resting place for all veterans and their eligible dependents.

A veteran who is discharged under honorable conditions may be eligible for interment at the cemetery.  As a general rule, an honorably discharged veteran, having served on active duty, prior to September 7, 1980 is eligible.  After September 7, 1980, a veteran must have served at least 24 months on active duty to be eligible.  However, there are some exceptions.  Members of Reserve Components and Reserve Officers' Training Corps may be eligible under many different circumstances.  

All veterans should apply and let the cemetery determine your eligibility.  Spouses and dependents may also be eligible.

You are encouraged to pre-apply for interment at the Veterans Cemetery.  The application process is simple and saves surviving family members the hardship of finding required documents prior to interment.  Without an application,  interment may have to be delayed until substantial proof is submitted.  The veteran submitting an application will receive an eligibility certificate, which also may include eligibility for dependents.
